This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you.

The Lakher alphabet consists of the following letters : 

Alphabet. Pronunciation. 

like u in the English word ^m. 

like a in the English yford, father. 

like ir in the English word Jir^ without rolling 

the r. 
like aw in the English word awl. 
as in English. 

like ch in the English word chop. 
as in English. 

like e in the English word tell. 
like the first e in the English word there. 
as in English, 
like h in the English word hxyme. When h is 

placed at the end of a syllable or word, it 

denotes that the preceding vowel sound must 

be abruptly shortened, 
like i in the English word sit. 
like i in the English word police. 
as in English (used only in foreign words). 

as in English. 

* The final vowels .of words and syllables being generally long, they are not as a 
rule accented.

Alphabet. Pronunciation. 

Ng ng when ng comes at the beginning of a syllable or 
word it is pronounced like ng in the English 
word singer. When ng comes at the end of a 
syllable or word, the pronunciation seems to be 
made up of a curious combination of a nasal 
and a guttural sound, the true pronunciation 
of which can only be learnt from a Lakher. 
The vowel a usually precedes this pronuncia- 

like in the English word pot. 

like in the English word dome. 

as in English. 

like r in the tinglish word rock (this letter is never 

as in English. 

pronounced with the tip of the tongue touching 
the teeth. 

like u in the English word/WZ. 

like u in the English word W^. 

as in English. 

sometimes as in English, and sometimes like the b 
in the- English word plewmre, 
eu is pronounced like eu in the French word^ew, fire. 

This is a very common sound. 

Note —When ch, k^por t, are combined with h they are pronounced as foHows: — 
cM like d^ in the English word cAtercA, but "^ there must, however, be no 
distinctly aspirated. | hiatus between the k and h, p and A, 

kh like kh in the English word blockhead, Vt and A, as in the English words, but 
pk like pk in the English word uphill. | both must be pronounced with one 
th like ^ A in the English word neatJierd. ) breath. 

!^h is pronounced like sh in the English word ship. 

When the liquids Z, m, w, r, are aspirated they are preceded 
by the letter h. When the initial ng is aspirated it is followed 
by h. 

The numbers are represented by the same figures as in 


Nouns are declined as follows : — 


Nom: Laisha^ laisha-tay laisha-na ••• a girl. 

Voc: Laisha ... ..• ... o girl. 

* The final vowels of words and syllables being generally long, they are not as a 
rule accent<Hl.

Poss : Laisha (or laisha with the suflSc na ap- 
pended to the thing possessed, as : — 

Laisha viapakaw-nay agirVs coat)... a girl's. 

Obj: Laisha ... ... ... a girl. 


Nom: Laiaha^zeu, laisAa-zeutay laisha-naw ... girls. 

Voc: Laisha- zeu, laisha-naw ... ... ol girls. 

Poss: Laisha-zeu^ laisha-naw ... ... girls'. 

Obj: Laisha-zeUj laisha^naw ... ... girls. 


There are three Genders, idz.^ masculine, feminine and neuter. 

(1) Masculine and feminine are sometimes distinguished by 
different words, as — 

sha-tliaj a youth : laisha^ a maid. 

(2) By affixing chapaw for the masculine and chanao for the 
feminine to the general word, as-* 

sheiy a slave ; shei chapaw y a male slave ; shei chanao ^ a 

female slave. 
aw chapaWy a cock ; aw chanao, a hen. 

(3) In the case of full-grown animals taopa is sometimes 
used instead of chapaw for the masculine, as — 

mt, a goat ; mi taopa^ a he-goat. 

(4) Some words are the same in both the masculine and 
feminine, as — 

U'tay elder brother or sister. 
naW'ta^ younger brother or sister, 
sometimes pa is affixed to chapaw or chanao for the sake 
of euphony, as — 
mi chanao-pa, a she-goat 


There are two numbers, vtz.^ singular and plural. 

(1) The plural of nouns is formed by affixing one of the 
following terminations to the singular : — 
zeu^ ^ naWy 

zeu'duoy sha-hlawh. 

thangy a tree ; thang zeuy trees. 

aw'shiy a star ; aw-shi zeu-duay stars. 

laishay a girl ; laisha nawy girls. 

hatiy a boy, hati-sha-hlawhy boys. 

NoTB.-^Sometimes when the aboye are used with postpositions, the postposition pre« 
cedM the plural affix, as-^ 

Thang rH^ta zeu-ta shi tCy go under the trees. 

Digitized by 



(2) Nouns are not inflected for the plural number when they 
are qualified by adjectives denoting plurality, as— 

Ang pao'pali'i-hneih ... I have four houses. 

Pang pao-nang na-pi-te ... Give nae two cloths. 
Lakhu heU'kha a hneih ... He has several hats. 


There are. four cases, viz.. Nominative, Vocative, Objective 
and Possessive. 

Nominative Case. 

When the subject of a sentence is followed by a transitive 
verb in the active voice it usually takes the termination <a, pata^ 
or na to distinguish it from the object. In other instances it 
generally remains unchanged. Frequently for the sake of eu- 
phony the termination pata becomes pana. 

Examples — 

Viachaw-ta shipaopa a ha. The cow ate the grass. 
ChanaO'ta sachha a zua ... The man is selling rice. 
Hati'pata laisha a tuh ... The boy beat the girl. 

Vocative Case. 

The vocative case is the same in form as the nominative. 

Hatij khapa na ta? ... Boy, what are you doing? 

Khichhai sha-hlawh khapa You strangers, what do you 
ma na ma khang ? want 2 

Objective Case. 

This case has no inflection. The noun in the objective case 
is generally placed immediately before the transitive verb which 
governs it. 

Examples — 

Na nawta-pa, alo cha-let- Your younger brother has gone 

pata^ Tla-bola a zu. to Demagiri to buy salt. 

Ita pazu a patu-dai m^a. The dog is about to seize the 

I u hnangta i i pi aw. I will give a dog to my elder 


Digitized by 



Possessive Case. 

The noun denoting the possessor is generally placed imme- 
diately before the noun denoting the thing possessed, and is used 
adjectively without any inflection as — 

Kali sha a shei ... Kali's hair is long. 

Chanao pang i zua haw ... I have sold the woman's clotL 

Sometimes ei is added after the noun to denote the possessor, 

He shei he aheu ei maw f ... Whose gayal is this ? 

I na ei. . • . ... My mother's. 


Adjectives are placed after the words they qualify, as — 

CheU'Sha pha. A good man. 

Thang sha. A high tree. 

When an adjective is used to complete the predicate of a 
sentence, a pronominal particle (see page 14), agreeing with the 
subject, is placed before the adjectives. 

Examples — 

He pang he a pha ne. This cloth is good. 

He pawpi he a shai ne. This flower is red. 

When a noun is used as an adjective, it precedes the noun it 
qualifies, as — 

/ sham a-nang a lei haw. My beer glass is lost 

/ ang lo ang ne. My house is a stone house. 

Comparative Dbgsbb. 

This is formed by adding the adverb via^ * more,' to the posi- 
tive and inserting the conjunction hlata^ * than,' after the object 
of comparison • 

Examples — 

Shawchapaw shawchanao The son is taller than the 
hlata a sha via. daughter. 

Thita hlata keu a hri via. Lead is heavier than iron. 

When hlata is used with the demonstrative it is combined 
thus — 

Hei'hi hlata. becomes he-hlana-he-ta. , 

HaW'hu hlata. „ haw-hlana-haw-ta. 

Kha-khaw hlata. „ kha-hlana-kha-ta. 

KhU'khu hlata. „ khu-hlana-khu-ta. 

Khi'khi hlata. „ hhi-hlana-khi-ta, 

Cha-chu'hlata. „ cha-hlana-cha-ta.

Examples — 

HaW'hlana-haW'ta hei-he a This is better than that. 

pha via. 
Khi chanao hlana khi-ta kha That maiden near you is 

laisha kha a aha via ne. taller than that woman up 


When the object of comparison is not mentioned, hlata is not 
used, as — 

Na shawchapaio a aha via. Your son is taller. 


This is formed bv adding the adverb chai^ 'most,* to the 
positive and inserting hlataj * than/ or hreuta^ * among,' after the 
object of comparison, as— 

He ang he ang zeu-dua This house is the best house. 

hlata a pha chai. 

Phalo zeu hreuta na nA cheu You are the shortest of the 

chai. sahibs. 

Chai may sometimes be omitted. 

When the object of comparison is not mentioned hlata is not 
used, as — 

He pavypi he a pha chai. This flower is the prettiest

2, pao-nang. 

3, paO'thao. 

4, paO'pali. 

5, paO'pa-ngaw.

The cardinals, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, and 90 are formed by 
adding to sheu the units pao-nangj pao-thaOy etc., without their 
common prefix, pao^ as — 

20, sheu-nang. 
30, sheu'thao. 
40, sheU'pcUi. 
50, sheu'pa-ngaw. 

60, sheu'charu. 
70, sheu'Sari. 
80, sheU'Chari. 
90, sheU'Chaki. 

The cardinals 21, 22, etc., 31, 32, etc., are formed by adding 
pao'kha^ paO'Tiangy etc., to sheU'tiang, sheu-thaoy etc., and inserting 
the conjunction ncUaj ^ and ' as — 

21, sheu'tiang nata pao'kha. 100, sheU'hraWj or za. 

32, sheu-thao nata pao-nang. 10(K), sha. 
43, sheU'pali nata pao-tha^, 10,000, then. 
54, sheu-pa^ngaw ncUa pao- 

Hundreds, thousands, etc., are formed in the same manner as 
the multiples of ten, as— 
2(^0, za nang. 
4000, sha pali. 
30,000, then thao. 

Natay * and,' is also inserted between the thousands, hundreds^ 
and tens, as — 

843, za chari nata sheu pali nata pao-thOfO. 
1907, sha kha nata za chaki nata pao-sari. 

When the cardinals from 1 to 9 are used to qualify nouns 
the prefix pao is often omitted, as — 

Nang chai^, six days. 
Thang pali^ four trees. 

The prefix is generally retained when human beings are 
spoken of, and then pao becomes, pa as — 

Laisha pa-chaki^ nine maidens. 

When any numeral above ten qualifies a noun, the noun is 
usually repeated after each recurrence of the conjunction nata^ 
and the prefix pao is omitted. With words of two or more sylla- 
bles this rule does not generally apply. 

Examples — 

Tlaw hraw nata tlaw chqri^ 18 rupees, 
Cheu-shapa za nata sheu pali^ 140 men.

These are formed by affixing na to the cardinal numbers, as — 
Chahu pao-pali-na vaw la te, — Fetch the fourth book. 
A nang thao-na ta a thi^ — He died on the third day. 

In speaking of the order of time the ordinal numbers may 
also be expressed by repeating the noun after the cardinal, as — 

Nang charu nang, — The sixth day. 

Za pa-ngaw za ta % vaw tlao aw, — I shall arrive on the fifth 

*Every other day ' is expressed by nang kha dai ta 
*Every third day * „ nang nang dai ta. 

*Every fourth day ' „ nan^ thao dai ta. 

and so on. 


These are formed by doubling the cardinal and adding the 
affix shai'tay as : — 

Paonang paonang shai ta, — two at a time. 

These are formed by prefixing ei to the cardinal numbers and 
omitting the prefix pao, as : — 

Ei'thaOy thrice, 

Ei'palij four times. 

Ei'sheu paliy forty times. 

In compound numbers ei is repeated after each recurrence of 
the conjunction nata, as — 

Ei sheu thao nata e% palij 34 times. 


The demonstrative adjectives are — 


He he or he hi, .». this. 

Hawhu, ... that (there). 

Kha JchaWf ... that (near you). 

Khuhhu^ •.. that down there. 

Khi khi, ... that up there.

The noun which the demonstrative qualifies is placed between 
the two words forming the demonstrative, as —

Cha parao'pa cha na pa- 

Khi ang zeu khi kei ei ne 

Khu vaw khu'ta a law a ni 

He lapi lia-na he shang te 
Shadao lia-na khu-ta na ha

PART 1. — GRAMMAR. 11 

Kha is generally used when the antecedent is known to or has 
been seen by the speaker, whether it is known to or has been seen 
by the person addressed or not. v 

Cha is generally used when the antecedent has only been 
heard of by the speaker, but is known to or has been seen by the 
one addressed 

The relative pronoun follows the verb of the relative sen- 

Examples — 

Aza'hiataavdpakha,khatai' Where is the man who came 
tama ad"? last night ? 

■•• Pang mdlata i cha lei ^a cha^ I will give you the cl<»th which 
X cha pi la va na. I shall buy to-morrow, 

CheU'sha na khang pa zeu- Call whichever man you like. 
dua aw te. 

Aw zeu(jth(inachalei pa zeu- Whatever fowls you bought 

dua pha vei. were bad- 

Very frequently the relative pronoun is omitfed, and then 

the verb becomes a participle or adjective qualifying the noun 

in the ordinary manner. 

Examples — 

I cha rang-pa a pha ne The letter which I have writ- 

ten is good (lit my written 
letter is good). 

Na ang sha-pa a lai-tu haw The house which you built is 
na. too large. 

A pang sha-pa a pha ngai-ta The cloth which she wove is 
na very pretty. 

The possessive cases * whose ', * of which ', and * whoseover ' are 
expressed by usiftg the above nominatives and prefixing the prono- 
minal particle referring to the antecedent to the thing possessed, 
as — 

Mia lu i tai'pa cha, i-na a The goat, the head of which I 
ni. cut offf a dog has eaten. 

Thang a paw i cha pi pa The tree of which I gave you 
Ma, kei shadao liata a d. the flower is in my garden.
